Filmmakers in the Midwest are always busy making new movies to make your skin crawl. Here are some of their latest projects.
OBSTACLE CORPSE-Assuming the film is as original as the title, Hope Madden's debut feature film should be a fun run. The horror-comedy is casting this Octorber and shoots this spring in Ohio.
Casting begins this October, with notices and updates being shared on the production's social channels at @ObstacleCorpseFilm, and on Twitter at @ObstacleCorpseX.
Matthew Mark Hunter's signature MMH Productions has a bone to pick with indie festival fav THE TALE OF THE BONE COLLECTOR; wherein Max tells his sister a scary story to make her not want to camp out with him. But is his story of the Bone Collector real? Or did he really make it up?
Lensed in Bedford, Ohio with a two man crew (Mark and Roger Miller working the SFX Makeup)

THE WONDERLAND DINER has more on the menu than comes in through the back door in Jake Kopronika's short order spooker starring
Celeste Blandon Jake Kopronica and Patrick Johnston.
You can pull it off the meat hook close to Halloween at Simpatico Pictures' YouTube channel https://youtube.com/channel/UCqjT6amhiZ7NbGpGuNf6Bgw
'Don't leave the house, or else,' is the last thing a bitterly divorcing couple wants to hear, and that's the suburban nightmare for SUBJECT SIX-ALPHA TWO, by Mark Borison.
This tense sci fi short is currently on the festival circuit, so the suspense will build until the door opens.
As if the Big C isn't scary enough, Abby is invited to dinner by old friends who have sinister plans for the cancer growing inside her in ENTROPY by Cincinnatians Scott and Kameron Hale. Shot in Deer Park, Loveland and Over The Rhine, Ohio. Look for DVD and streaming in January. https://youtu.be/18kAo6YptG0
Are we saving the best for last? You be the judge:
Everybody's favorite creature actor Doug Jones tells me he's playing his all-time dream monster in NOSFERATU REMIX, where the production team digitized the original 1922 silent film, removed the actors, and green screened new actors (including Dougie in the title role) in their place.
The goal is to turn the classic film into a talkie, using the original script dialogue.
The producers will likely wait until 2022, the film's 100th anniversary, for release. In the meantime, catch the terrifying F.W. Murnau production in all its glory here.
